So far Civil War II is reminding more of the unnecessary and regrettable Secret War II than any comic should. For a genius Tony Stark makes a boneheaded move by abducting Ulysses from the Inhumans’ home of New Attilan. Nearly causing a full-scare war in the middle of New York City only to service his curiosity of how the man’s powers work and give into his anger over the death of his friend, only the intervention of Carol Danvers prevents things from escalating.
Two issues into the event, the sides are slowly being drawn but the issue of what exactly they are fighting over still feels ill-defined (especially compared to Marvel’s first Civil War) or what Tony risks a super-powered war for here. And since apparently none of the Avengers have ever read or watched science fiction they are completely unprepared for the concept of a self-fulfilling prophecy as Ulysses’ latest vision suggest the Hulk will destroy the Avengers. But by sending Danvers after him has Ulysses just caused the events to occur (where no intervention on the heroes’ part might have let Marvel Comics’ big green brute slumber)? Hit-and-Miss.
